Encouragement for Your Faith Journey

Encouragement for Your Faith Journey

Watchman Nee has said “The Christian experience is, from start to finish, a journey of faith”. I couldn’t agree more. First of all, we are on our way home. But also our faith is hopefully not stagnant but evolving throughout our lives. Your faith journey is an adventure Faith gives meaning and purpose to our lives. Most of all, it give us an eternal perspective. And that changes everything. This life is not all there is, there are better things…

Running with Purpose

Running with Purpose

Do you know why you are you and why you are living on this earth? It is hard to live without meaning and purpose. But only when we are made right with God, we find what is the purpose of our lives. Rick Warren writes “Bringing enjoyment to God, living for his pleasure, is the first purpose of your life. When you fully understand this truth, you will never again have a problem with feeling insignificant. It proves your worth….

Traveling Light

Traveling Light

Traveling light is one of the tricks to endure on any journey. This is especially important to Christian pilgrims wanting to make it all the way home one day. The journey itself is hard enough, no extra baggage needed to drag us down. Especially when the help is near and readily available for anyone. Therefore then, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw…

Are You on the Way?

Are You on the Way?

Are you on the way to meet Jesus? Like the wise men? Without waiting for 100% proof? The wise men must have been on the road to pay homage to the new born king for quite some time now.  They most likely had known about the prophecy of Daniel and were familiar with the astronomy. But they were on the way to meet Jesus by faith. They did not wait for 100% proof before starting their journey to Jesus. It…

Quest for God’s Will, part 4/4

Quest for God’s Will, part 4/4

This week we’ve been searching for God’s will. We can be certain that God wants to be found and he will personally teach us how to live in his will. Jesus said, “Don’t bicker among yourselves over me. You’re not in charge here. The Father who sent me is in charge. He draws people to me—that’s the only way you’ll ever come. Only then do I do my work, putting people together, setting them on their feet, ready for the…

Practicing Patience, Cultivating Endurance

Practicing Patience, Cultivating Endurance

Our pilgrimage to God is a marathon. Hence it’s not about speed but about endurance. It’s as much about taking care of our faith along the way as learning to praise God in the midst of anything and everything. Our marathon will be finished the same way it was started: By taking steps of faith in hope. We were saved in hope. If we see what we hope for, that isn’t hope. Who hopes for what they already see? But…

Do you believe that Jesus was risen on the third day? If yes, how do you practice resurrection? How is your life different because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ? Because resurrection life should not be business as usual. Just see what the apostles did: The apostles continued to bear powerful witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and an abundance of grace was at work among them all. (Acts 4:33, CEB) How are you bearing powerful witness to…

Your Place in the Relay of Faith

Your Place in the Relay of Faith

Did you know that you are a very important person in God’s plans? For real. It does not necessarily feel like it or even look like it from your perspective. But when you look at the big picture or from God’s perspective, you see the importance of every person in the relay of faith. Just the same way we need to look at the big picture and not to be satisfied with partial truths when we are reading the Bible….

From Worries 2 Wonders?

From Worries 2 Wonders?

Is it possible to get from worries to wonders in mere seconds? Yes, it is. Not by our own might but by the Holy Spirit.If the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, the one who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your human bodies also, through his Spirit that lives in you. (Romans 8:11, CEB) If the same Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the tomb lives in you, also…
